    <b>BGTeam and a video gaming website BestGamer.ru are presenting you Age of Pirates (SeaDogs 3): Secrets of Far Seas v 1.0</b>

    First or last it had to happen, first or last it had to be released. It’s all about v 1.0. We had been going towards that release more than two years and finally it happened!
    The final release date had been postponed many times and there were some explanations of those delays. But we won’t discuss it right now (you can find out more information on this subject in BGTeam.pdf, which you’ll find in a root folder of the programme).

    So, welcome Secrets of Far Seas v 1.0.0406.

    <b>Installation of the expansion pack</b>

    •To install the expansion pack “Age of Pirates: Secrets of Far Seas”, you will require an installed Corsairs 3 game of any 1C version.
    •Choose the folder with the installed game as a final destination.
    •Everything’s done now. In a root of the folder with the installed game launch config.exe, save the settings, then launch engine.exe and you are in the game.

    <b>Information about the expansion pack:</b>

    Have you ever wondered yourself as a real Buccaneer, who robs civil vessels or as a Privateer, who fights for one of the nations in their conflict in the Caribbean? Or you probably wondered to feel the smell or the spirit of a sea which is so dangerous and so attractive?
    The game “Age of Pirates” gives you this opportunity, but there are a lot of serious defects. You’ve certainly heard about them.
    Out team had decided to change sad tendencies and we changed them. We’ve made a new “Age of Pirates” which is really interesting to play. We added a lot of new locations, a few vessels, a new main character; we created a new interesting and exciting main story and added a lot of thrilling secondary quests. The expansion pack changed the original “Age of Pirates” game out of all recognition.

    The action begins in a European port of San Sebastian. A young naval officer called Peter Blake has known, that he is appointed to command a vessel, which sails to the New World. Coming to the Caribbean, Peter Blake finds himself put into prison where he learns about the mysterious treasure. To get this treasure becomes protagonist’s main aim. Over the time of his search, our hero will meet lots of vivid characters, will take part in hundreds of adventures, which will help Peter to guess a riddle of this treasure.

    We move through the interesting story not as an observer, but directly on behalf of the main hero. From time to time, the protagonist will express his opinion about what’s going on and what’s happening around him. Moreover, there are some recreated stories which are suggested by “Pirates of the Caribbean” trilogy. These quests are finely entwined with the main story giving it more special charm. In these quests, the player is given an opportunity to try himself as Captain Jack Sparrow, William Turner, Hector Barbossa and even Davy Jones himself. The characters of trilogy appearances are reconstructed with a photographic accuracy. During the completion of the main story Peter Blake will be faced with a betrayal and a real friendship. Maybe he will even meet his true love on his way.

    The game won’t fetter you with its story. If you don’t like to complete the main quest missions, you can always leave it and to go to rob some civil vessels, attack any nation forces or to run some business. But don’t forget that the main aim is still the completing of the main story quests.
    Many of the non playable characters of the game are the unique persons with their own personal stories and problems.

    All the updates are to be installed on the respective versions, FULL-version is to be installed on clear AoP.

    After the installation it is necessary to start a new game!


    It is strongly recommended not to use “run of time” when you are completing some quests, also when there are some script-scenes, especially to users with not very high-end PCs’. BGTeam are not responsible for the bugs you have because of using “run of time”.

    Besides the expansion pack itself, the version includes:
    • BGTeam.pdf
    • SoFS F.A.Q. (pdf-file)
    • Completing of the SoFS (pdf-file)
    • readme.pdf
    It is strongly recommended to look through these manuals. There is a lot of interesting information in these manuals.

    The following expansion pack is the intellectual property.
    It is in open testing and it is in free distribution.
    If using any content from SoFS it is obligatory to cite on BGTeam and SoFS official website.
    All the bugs and problems you have found you can discuss in the respective topic of our forum. Also you can discuss the current version of the expansion pack in the respective topic.

    BGTeam thanks you for your patience and understanding and wishes you nice game!

    Êîðñàð (Corsair), the project leader: “I’d like to add that I’ve been waiting this release-day since the beginning of our work. But now I’m a bit sad because SoFS for me is much more than just the expansion pack. SoFS is like a short life.”

    Cheers!

    Well here you have it folks. The announcement I've been sitting on these many weeks now.

    I've got most of the English translation done now for the menus, items and other things. Have to finish up all the dialogs still. I'd say there is at least another 3 to 4 weeks of work doing this on my own.

    As soon as I have the translation completed, I'll let everyone know.

    Here is the link to the current revision of the mod--> <a href="http://www.piratesahoy.net/build/sofs/AoP_SoFS_1.0.0305_ENG.rar" target="_blank">SoFS 1.0.0305 English</a>

    Installation order is as follows:

    1) Install AoP English Stock
    2) Install SoFS 1.0.0406
    3) Extract the english translation to your game directory, overwriting everything
    4) Play

    To reiterate, this translation is NOT complete yet. You will have translated menus, windows and items. Only a few of the dialogs are translated and to the best of my knowledge NONE of them are part of the main storyline. Basically the english translation can be considered English Alpha 0.01

    Any questions or comments I will do my best to answer or reply to.

    Okay, the current translation is in my directory on the PotC FTP site.

    As I stated in the previous post, none of the dialogs are translated. The only things translated are the menus and windows used in the game. So its playable, but its nowhere near done yet.

    I'll keep everyone updated as I release new versions of the translation.

    My current version of the translation is based on 1.0.0305. As soon as I get a chance to, I'll do a comparison and incorporate the updates from 1.0.0406, once that is done I'll get an update from that added as well.

    Enjoy everyone!

    If you want, we can put your translations on the Build Downloads FTP so you can HTTP-link to them and there'd be no FTP programs required.

    That would be great, Pieter. Didn't realize we could do that from the FTP's. So if necessary we can get it moved over and I'll add a link to it a bit later.

    We used to be able to do that with ALL our FTPs, but not anymore. Now we actually have a third, not-public, FTP for HTTP-linked downloads.
    So we've got the Files FTP (accessible to all), the Build FTP (accessible to Modders) and the Build Downloads FTP (accessible only to those who need to upload important downloadable files). <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/doff.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":doff" border="0" alt="doff.gif" />

    Is there any other site where i can download this mod? -.-
    the download from the link is very slow it takes about 12 hours to finish with only 20 kb/s <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />
    Hope there is any other mirror for downloading that mod

    Goes at 140 kB/s for me when I had a quick test.
    Why doesn't somebody make a ModDB page for "Age of Pirates: Caribbean Tales" and adds the Supermod and this mod available for download on there?
    It'd be quite useful to have all AoP-related modpacks available, with installation details, on an easy-to-find website. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" />

    There exist programs that allow you to resume downloads. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/icon_mrgreen1.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":cheeky" border="0" alt="icon_mrgreen1.gif" />
    If you or somebody DOES make a ModDB page for this, you can submit the download without downloading it yourself by "uploading from URL".
    Once that's done, you can probably download it yourself much quicker. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/razz.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":razz" border="0" alt="razz.gif" />

    I'll see about setting up a ModDB page a bit later, Pieter. I've been a bit busy with RL this last week. I'll have updates on what is going on for folks as regular as I can.

    And I imagine the Supermod should be posted somewhere as well. It's hard to find stuff. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mybad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":facepalm" border="0" alt="mybad.gif" />
